Budget Advocacy Strategies, Tools, Tactics, and Opportunities

Civil society organizations (CSOs) that seek to engage in budget processes to address problems, such as hunger, lack of access to HIV/AIDS treatment, or insufficient resources for education in remote areas, must identify the budget-related issues behind the problem, scan the political and policy environment, and take action. There areĀ a variety of strategies and tools, as well as various opportunities and openings for advocacy, that CSOs might incorporate into their efforts to influence policies and, ultimately, outcomes.

The information presented on these pages is not exhaustive, so wherever possible we have included links to excellent resources and examples of civil society budget advocacy around the world.
